Stoke City boss Tony Pulis expects a major test tonight against Capital One Cup opponents Swindon Town.

Paolo Di Canio brings his Swindon side to the Britannia Stadium tonight.

And Pulis warned: "They are very well organised - and for all of the attacking flair associated with Di Canio, I think he's brought a little bit of Italian steel to their defence.

"It's a big game for them and a banana skin for us."
